In February, we will be bringing ecologist, writer, and activist Dr. Sandra Steingraber to campus.
The Honors Program is offering free copies of her influential book, Raising Elijah: Protecting Our Children in an Age of Environmental Crisis. The book incorporates precise science into a witty, lyrical memoir: it will be perfect reading for the winter break and great preparation for her visit.
Copies of Raising Elijah can be picked up in the Honors Office (L218) as long as supplies last.
The book is yours to keep (and share with other interested readers), but we ask that you pledge to attend one of the Steingraber events (documentary film screenings, book discussions, or the Feb. 27th lecture itself), to be held in January and February.
We are pleased to offer an all-honors section of MA 150: Statistics with Dr. Mary Fowler, chair of the Math Department (MW 11:30-12:45).
This is a required course for many majors, and it fulfills the QR requirement. The only prerequisite is an Accuplacer score of 4 or above.
Have a favorite professor you’d like to know better? Hungry for some good conversation?
Invite your professor to lunch (or breakfast or dinner) in the upper dining hall, and WSU will pick up the tab!
How it works:
-Invite your professor.
-Contact Angela Quitadamo (email@example.com) in order to pick up a meal ticket. If you don’t have a meal plan, you can pick up a ticket for yourself as well.

Don’t be shy! There’s something about breaking bread together that fosters the development of community, and your professors will welcome the invitation.
